Fred Hall's Swing Thing
Saturday and Sunday from Midnight to 1 A.M.

Swing Thing: in the making since Fred Hall first interviewed Helen Forrest back in 1945. Since then Fred recorded hundreds of interviews with the singers, song-writers, sidemen band leaders and arrangers directly involved in the ongoing evolution of that uniquely American musical idiom including it's many off-shoots and derivatives that we now call Swing. These remarkable shows span the entire gamut of early American music, which includes Swing, early Jazz, and Dixieland.
